To those of you left cold and alone, longing for the glory of Popshop last Thursday, we must apologize. But dry your eyes friends, because the wait will be worth it, as CMJ is right around the corner and with it comes the biggest Popshop yet. That's right, for the very special CMJ edition of our beloved club night, we're bringing you an expanded MEGA edition of Popshop featuring some of our favorite new acts of 2011.
Headlining we've got Brite Futures live and Xaphoon Jones on the decks, two acts basically born for the Popshop stage as two of the best partystarting names in the game. Then as main support we've got Electric Guest, LA's best new band and our biggest tip for mega stardom in 2012. We've been asked to keep them under wraps to this point, but it's time to let the cat out of the bag and CMJ is going to be a coming out party for the ages - say hello to your favorite new band. Getting things started in the early slots we've got a triple threat of openers, from the anthemic ensemble indie of Louisiana's Royal Teeth, to the dark, Kate Bush-esque pop of Denmark's Fallulah and the ice cold synths of Los Angeles' DWNTWN. Finally, we'll have DC's finest Brenton Duvall, making his Popshop debut at long last and keeping things moving on the decks all night until Xaph takes over in the early hours.
As usual we'll be getting your night started right with an hour of open bar vodka, but we'll be kicking things off an hour earlier this month at 7pm, with the complimentary Absolut flowing freely from 7-8. Also different this month will be the price tag... because there isn't one. That's right, this month's Popshop will be FREE ENTRY with RSVP to RSVP@neongoldrecords.com. Entry will be first come first serve and this will reach capacity (some of you may recall the 1,000+ RSVPs we had for our launch party back in January and the ensuing line around the block), so come early to avoid disappointment. See you soon New York, let's go bigger than ever this month.
